Hi,

I am just wondering whether it is possible to purchase a DVD recorder with hard disk that can be integrated into a 'home network' (e.g. has Ethernet connection so that I can access the hard disk using, for example, ftp)?

Any pointers would be very much appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

Chris

it is more of a software than a hardware your looking for... If you already have a network and a very decent DVD recorder all you need is ghost...

I rather thought about something like this:

http://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-RD-XS54-Recorder-Hard-Drive/dp/B000B658N2

However, could not find a similar item available in the Uk.

Type this "ethernet dvd recorder" (no quotes) into Google UK and you'll get some answers.

The Kiss DP558 looks to be what you're after.

mhh ... i tried these keywords but just realised that I used google.com, which always pointed to .com (e.g. amazon.com) domains rather than .co.uk domains. thanks

Just read a bit about Kiss DP558. Can you access the harddisk via the ethernet port via ftp or something (e.g. download films on a mp4 player) or is this port 'only' used for EPG?

Not sure what you mean by EPG? Electronic Programme Guide?

The Kiss will show up as a network drive and you can transfer various movie formats to and from it.

A few..

LIteOn LVD-2010
KISS DP-1500 (low cost)
PANASONIC DMRE500HEBS
Toshiba RD-XS54

I suggest you start with these and check out any reviews you can find on the web. Hopefully you'll find something that matches your requirements.

I can't recommend any of them particularly but it's worthwhile getting one with the ability to upgrade the firmware. That way you should be able to keep up with new codecs.
